f? ol I of this town, says: "I suffered for
ive years with womanly troubles, a'so
stomach troubles, and my punishment
was more than any one could tell.
1 tried most every kind of medicine,
but none did me any good.
I read one day about Cardui, the wo
man's tonic, and 1 decided to fry it. I
had not taken but about six bottles until
I was almost cured, lt did mc more
good than all the other medicines 1 had
tried, put toge^-r.
My friends oegan asking me why I
looked so well, and 1 tola them about
Cardui. Several are now taking it."
Do you, lady reader, suffer from any
nf th* ailments due to womanly trouble,
such as headache, backache, sidcachc.
sleeplessness, and that everlastingly tired
If so. let us urge you to give Cardui a
trial. We feel confident it will help you,
Just as it has a million other women in
ihe past half century.
Begin faking Cardui to-day. You
won't regret it. Ail druggists.
